The Tennessee Education Lottery Corporation has approved VegasWINNERS as a sports wagering provider. VegasWINNERS is a subsidiary of Winners Inc that provides sports betting aficionados with information, analysis, research, data, assistance, and professional counsel.
Customers in Tennessee can now be referred to regulated sportsbooks in exchange for commission payments through VegasWINNERS.
VegasWINNERS CEO Wayne Allyn Root said: “This is positive news for our company. It’s even more affirmation for our vision as sports gambling explodes in popularity. We hope to have affiliate licenses in every state with legal sports gambling. From my 36 years in this industry, I can tell you Tennessee is a state filled with enthusiastic sports bettors and we are honored and excited to be part of sports betting in the great state of Tennessee.”
Since its November 2020 launch, Tennessee sports betting revenue has been on the rise. According to reports from January 2021, the state’s overall sports betting revenue was $49 million and wagers were $523 million.
So far, the Volunteer State has taken in approximately $1.1 billion in sports wagers through 2021. When NFL and college football resume in the second half of the year, betting traffic is expected to rise.
VegasWINNERS, a regulated sports betting affiliate, is currently registered in a number of states and has filed applications in others. It plans to obtain licences in every state that allows online sports betting.
